The I-40 Mississippi River Bridge

November 11, 2021

Director Tudor Statement

ARDOT is grateful that the bridge investigations are complete.  We will now move forward with confidence and make the changes necessary to improve our program so that the past will not be repeated.  Our highest calling as public servants is the safety of Arkansas’ road users.  We appreciate Arkansans support and encouragement as we have navigated this difficult journey, which began exactly six months ago on May 11.
